Sesame Teriyaki Salmon
This was the first dish I ever cooked. It was about a couple of weeks after I got married and my husband was getting a bit annoyed of having to shlep to my moms for dinner every night, while my mother was upset I wasn’t using my brand new dishes she had so carefully selected for me. It was easier playing the role of wifey when I was getting mazol tovs and recieving gifts. Preparing dinner on the other hand, was a little more diffiult. In a panic I called my sister Tova and told her I had to make dinner and had no idea what to cook. Give me something good and give me something easy! (I didn’t think my confidence could handle a disaster the first night in the kitchen) I can’t remember her exact wording, but being that she is married almost 10 years with 4 boys, I am sure she must have laughed at my fear and told me to chill out. And then she gave me the following recipe.
Mikee’s Sesame Teriyaki Sauce (If you can’t find this at your local grocery store, then combine soy sauce with some teryaki sauce and add some sesame seeds if you would like)
Place the salmon in a pan. Pour the sauce on top. Cover with foil and bake for about 20-25 minutes on 350′. I serve this with Near East couscous. (They have a large selection of flavorings and take less than 5 minutes to prepare. My favorite is the toasted pine nuts)
